What Do You Do

SELF-REFLECTION

DAY 17

What do you do

When you don’t know what to do

When you don’t know what to say

And you don’t know what to think

What do you do

When there is nothing left to do

Nothing left to say

Nothing left to think

What do you do

When there is nothing you can do

Nothing you can say

To stop the pain

Or make it go away

What do you do

When you know exactly what to do

Exactly what to think

Yet you can’t do any of it

Something holds you back

You can see everything happening around you

You watch as it all falls to pieces

And you do nothing

What do you do

  1. What do you do

    When you watch yourself fall apart

    When you find yourself at the start

    What do you do

    When you think you can’t go on

    With this somber life

    What do you do

    You find an angel playing in the living room

    Her cheerful gaze adorned by a chocolate sweet smile

    What do you do?

    …Cheer up, Rachel. They need you. You need yourself.

  2. For me, I had to sit in that place for a bit. With it all falling to pieces around, and then, when I was ready, pick up just one piece at a time and move with that. Before I knew it, I had enough pieces in my hand to take a step…I hope this for you. HUGS.

  3. I know that feeling so well, it’s a hopeless, maddening kind of frustration. The answer I think is … Time. You give yourself time. You ride the waves of emotion until your heart & mind settle and know everything will be okay. Xx
